Help the Governor Help Aurora (not political)

Governor Hickenlooper has asked Coloradans to donate to, a fund set up by the Community First Foundation. All proceeds go to help victim’s assistance charities that will serve Aurorans. If you can afford to donate, please give generously. If you can’t, please help solicit donations directly to

Here is how I am helping, and would love for others to join me. I am making simple black ribbons (loops and a pin) and passing them out to everyone I see. When I do, I tell them they can donate to, the charity Governor Hickenlooper is pushing to help victims of the Aurora shootings, or to the Red Cross (Note: the ribbons ARE NEVER SOLD, just given away). I’ve already made more than 1000 ribbons and passed them out.

Ribbons accomplish two things: they stimulate healing conversations between strangers, and they give us an excuse to encourage people to give. Giving will help the healing process for everyone. For more information, go to the fb page “Compassion For Aurora”. Here’s a link to an msnbc story on the ribbon  project.…

Please donate generously to the victims families at, or to the American Red Cross at
